The Navy has awarded two contracts totaling a maximum of nearly $1.7 billion for installing C4ISR (command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) systems on surface ships and submarines and at shore stations around the world.
The nearly identical four-year deals were awarded to M.C. Dean and Honeywell Technology Solutions, according to a Defense Department announcement. Under the contracts, M.C. Dean could earn up to $854 million, Honeywell as much as $805 million.
Task orders under the contracts will involve the installation and certification of equipment on Navy vessels located on both the East and West coasts of the United States and locations around the world. Some allied customers also could have systems installed. Dean and Honeywell won’t make the C4ISR systems themselves, which are acquired under separate contracts. Work is expected to be finished by February 2019.
The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command in San Diego is handling the contract, which was competitively procured, although Dean and Honeywell were the only bidders.
